Simon - AmsterdamRecently active$23
Trusted teacher: “I feel stuck” These words I hear again and again, from beginners to advanced. The majority of students who come to me are frustrated. They spent many years studying languages at school. They’ve spent both their time and lots of money. Only to find themselves still struggling to form a sentence. Still struggling to be able to understand a native speaker. If you’re here then I’m assuming you share some of these same struggles. You get confused trying to memorize grammar rules, remember vocabulary, and makes sentances. You don’t know how to learn every day. You get distracted and then you feel too tired to keep going. Believe it or not, I’ve been there too and to be honest, it sucks to have another language is to possess a second soul Charlemage Now, I want you to trust me on your language journey Imagine finally knowing exactly what to do when you sit at your desk to learn a language. Imagine knowing how to learn grammar, how to remember vocabulary and make it stick, how to speak, and how to write beautiful sentences. Imagine going on holiday somewhere and interacting with locals. Laughing, eating, dancing and living life in a different language.

A speciality of mine is Business English, so I can also help with everything from preparing for an interview or speaking in meetings, to giving a presentation. While my classes are 100% in English, I can also speak Dutch and Spanish. This gives me a real insight as to why students make certain mistakes, and how to best avoid them.

Ik doe dit door middel van een verscheidenheid aan activiteiten om u stap voor stap te helpen uw vaardigheden op te bouwen; inclusief onder andere rollenspellen (gebaseerd op real-life situaties), Q & A's en games. Het doel is om je aan het praten te houden! De lessen worden vooral in het Engels gegeven, hierdoor kun je tijdens de les zoveel mogelijk Engels leren en oefenen. Maak je geen zorgen over het maken van fouten; door fouten te maken en ervan te leren word je zelfs beter. Herhaling is een belangrijk onderdeel van mijn lessen. Ik ga vaak terug om te controleren of je je nog herinnert wat in voorgaande lessen is geïntroduceerd. Ik bied ook lessen aan die gericht zijn op de voorbereiding op internationale examens Engels zoals de IELTS en TOEFL. Voordat we met onze lessen beginnen, wil ik weten wat jouw redenen zijn om Engels te leren. Als je al enige kennis van het Engels hebt zal ik bepalen wat jouw exacte niveau is. Zodra ik weet wat jouw behoeften, interesses en niveau zijn, kan ik de juiste materialen selecteren en de juiste cursus voor jou ontwerpen. We kunnen werken met een leerboek (plus extra materiaal) of met mijn eigen lesmateriaal. Ik maak gebruik van video's, dia's, werkbladen en ander lesmateriaal. Als je het leuk vindt, kan ik je ook oefeningen en bronnen per e-mail sturen, zodat je zelfstandig kan blijven leren. Bij twijfel kun je mij altijd bereiken via e-mail of WhatsApp. Onze lessen kunnen online zijn (met Zoom, Skype of een platform naar keuze), of ik kan bij jou thuis komen (in Haarlem, Velserbroek, Santpoort-Zuid, Santport-Noord, Driehuis, Beverwijk, IJmuiden of Overveen). De lessen kunnen een-op-een zijn of in een kleine groep.

We'll work on Speaking and Writing skills, and, of course, Grammar. For advanced learners I fancy such books as Destination and Grammar in Use (we won't be restrained by just these, though).

Klaudia - Amsterdam$53
Trusted teacher: Ahoy! Thank you for wanting to practice, learn, read or prepare for exams in English. My name is Klaudia and I am an English freak / linguist. I have been teaching children, teens and adults for 5 years. 2016-2017 I had stayed in London where I learned my neutral accent. In 2019, I got TEFL 120h and from one year I teach professionally. Lessons are always tailored to what you need. I believe in individual attention. What interests you, we'll talk about it in English. I prepare for every lesson and expect the same from you, that's why I always send you emails or messages so that your English stays active in your head even outside of class. While class we use a number of assistance resources: handouts, interactive media web sites, games, music, comics, books, news and all. The biggest benefit of my approach is flexibility. I make slots to use in your calendar. The more you take a class, the faster you will see the progress. I think one lesson a week is fine, but one lesson every 2 weeks is an absolute minimum. Learn quickly when you want and enjoy using English. I prefer to teach online because of corona, but I will come to you up to 20 km from Amsterdam.

Alessandra - Amsterdam$86
Trusted teacher: After working for four years as a private tutor in Amsterdam for numerous international families, I have discovered a love for teaching Adult ESL. My goal is to not only to teach ESL tailored to life in the Netherlands, but to also offer advice and support to expat adults around life in Amsterdam. I currently work with the parents of many of my students who wish to improve their English. I am a former primary school teacher (International School of Choueifat-Dubai) who now works exclusively as a private tutor. My students are mainly expats, though I also do have several local Dutch students. Having moved around quite a bit, I understand the stress families undergo adapting to a new school system. After four year in Amsterdam, I also now understand the unique stress parents also endure adapting to Dutch culture and regular use of the English language. My teaching methods focus on improving Adult ESL that is tailored specifically to life in the Netherlands. I design my teaching plans, with my students, to cover the most essential aspects of English that are needed to navigate life in Amsterdam. Moreover, I have a deep understanding of how English in the Netherlands differs from conversational English in other countries. I have a grasp of the nuances of both languages and the areas which pose particular difficulty. I really enjoy the motivation of my adult students and the unique friendships I have formed through teaching. I know how isolated some parents who are neither native English nor Dutch speakers feel when moving to Amsterdam. I am happy to teach all ages either in person or via webcam. **All rates include 21% KVK sales tax
